    He is a veteran armorer who has worked on films including 3:10 to Yuma.

    He maintains his daughter did everything right, and checked Baldwin’s gun before handing to Dave Halls, the Assistant Director.

    Both he and Hannah’s attorney say the set was most likely sabotaged by a disgruntled crew member.

    In the days before the accident, several crew members quit in a protest over conditions.
